The angels surrounded the club at 1 AM which was right before Mateen entered the club and made insane shooting a year ago. Orlando’s theater community created those angels to shield mourners from anti-gay protesters.

The incident took place on June 12, 2016, where 29 years old security guard Omar Mateen brutally killed 49 people and wounded 58 people. Pulse is a gay nightclub situated in Orlando where the fearful incident happened.
